    I have a form that uses a Dynamic Dropdown widget.

    I want to reference the selected value in the second level of the widget in a condition.  How do I do this?

    Do you want to set conditions based on the selected options of the Dynamic Dropdown widget?

    I made some tests and this is possible to achieve. You will have to use values of both dropdown field. For example the value of the selected options on this screenshot

    is Connecticut Place Finish 1. I am not sure why but the part of the field label is included. The best way to get the correct values of selected options is to add a Form Calculation widget to your form and add State / Place Finish field in Form Calculation widget as a String.

    Here is my form https://form.jotform.com/73034686351962, that you can use the get the correct values of selected fields from the Dynamic Dropdown widget. You can then set your conditions based on those values.

    If I did not understand your question correctly, please explain in more details what are you trying to achieve. 

    Hope this meet what you are looking for.
